On our Semester Study Abroad programme, study with other overseas students for 1 semester. You'll also be able to collaborate with local undergraduates.
Our semester programmes are perfect for art, design and fashion majors, as well as liberal arts students with some experience in these areas. They are designed for Study Abroad students, with a similar teaching style and course structure to US universities.
Due to global outbreak of COVID-19 all Study Abroad programmes at UAL will now start in Spring 2021.
Autumn term is cancelled, but you can take optional Online Study Abroad modules - added to your regular studies.
For Spring 2021, we have introduced flexible booking terms in response to COVID-19. If you decide to cancel your place on the course, the deposit payment is now refundable until 6 weeks before the course start, subject to receiving your cancellation notice in writing. If we have to cancel the course our usual Terms and Conditions apply. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries.
At UAL I was given the time and space to explore every interest and through that I was able to develop my work in a way I never thought possible."

For each of our semester programmes, there are classes that are mandatory for all students, and these classes will automatically be assigned to you.
For certain programmes, let us know before you arrive which classes you are interested in taking, and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.
See below for the range of courses available.
If you or your home university have any specific requirements about what you need to study while you are in London, please contact us in advance of your arrival.
As most of the teaching on the programme is conducted separately from our full-time students, semester programmes can be shaped according to the needs, interests and requirements of the group with time for more student support and additional elements such as field trips and special events.
Students can join the semester programme for credit towards degrees at their home institutions. As a guide, each semester is worth 12 to 16 US credits, depending on the classes taken.
In order for your home institution to award external credit, please read the module descriptions on each programme’s web page before you travel to London, as these will give you and your advisor a clear idea about what you will study while you are here.
Please make sure your home institution will award external credit before you travel to London. The Study Abroad team can provide additional module information on request.
